Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Brandon: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Korean learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native speaker. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Brandon: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question “Do you like Korean food?” In Korean this is
Kyejin: 한국음식을 좋아합니까?
Brandon: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 한국음식
Brandon: meaning “Korean food” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 한국음식
Brandon: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식
{Pause}
Brandon: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Kyejin: 을
Brandon: object marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 을
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 을
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식을
{pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 좋아합니
Brandon: This is the verb-stem of the verb
Kyejin: 좋아합니다.
Brandon: meaning “to like”.
Kyejin: 좋아합니
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 좋아합니
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 좋아합니
{pause}
Brandon: And after that
Kyejin: 까
Brandon: question marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 까
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 좋아합니까?
{pause}
Brandon: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Do you like Korean food?”
Kyejin: 네. 특히 김치를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: "Yes, I especially like Kimchi.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 네. 특히 김치를 좋아합니다.
{pause}
Brandon: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Kyejin: 네
Brandon: meaning “yes.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 네
Brandon: Now repeat
Kyejin: 네
{Pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 특히
Brandon: meaning “especially.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 특히
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 특히
{Pause}
Brandon: And after that
Kyejin: 김치
Brandon: meaning “Kimchi.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 김치
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 김치
{Pause}
Brandon: Next is
Kyejin: 를
Brandon: the object-marking particle
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 를
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 를
{Pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 좋아합니다.
Brandon: meaning “to like.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, I especially like Kimchi.,” and then repeat.
Kyejin: 네. 특히 김치를 좋아합니다.
{pause}
Brandon: To expand on the pattern, replace “Kimchi” with “Bulgogi.” ”
Kyejin: 불고기
Brandon: Bulgogi, grilled marinated meat.
Kyejin: (slow) 불고기 (regular) 불고기
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Bulgogi”
Kyejin: 네. 특히 불고기를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Kimchi” with “Bulgogi”. Say “Yes, I especially like Bulgogi.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 네. 특히 불고기를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: To use a different phrase, replace “Bulgogi” with “막걸리”, Makgeolli, Korean rice wine.
Kyejin: 막걸리
Brandon: Makgeolli, Korean rice wine.
Kyejin: (slow) 막걸리
(regular) 막걸리
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “막걸리”
Kyejin: 네. 특히 막걸리를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the “Bulgogi” with “Makgeoli”. Say “Yes, I especially like Makgeolli”
{pause}
Kyejin: 네. 특히 막걸리를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: To use a different phrase, replace “Makgeoli” with “Kimchi stew”.
Kyejin: 김치찌개
Brandon: Kimchi stew
Kyejin: (slow) 김치찌개
(regular) 김치찌개
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Kimchi stew.”
Kyejin: 네. 특히 김치찌개를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “makgeolli” with “kimchi stew”. Say “Yes, I especially like Kimchi stew.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 네. 특히 김치찌개를 좋아합니다.
Brandon: To say "no" to this question, just say:
Kyejin: 아니요. 안 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Which is like saying “No, I don’t like it.” in English. Let’s listen to the question and the answer together.
Kyejin: (Slowly) 아니요. 안 좋아합니다.
Brandon: And one more time at normal speed:
Kyejin: 한국음식을 좋아합니까?
Kyejin: 아니요. 안 좋아합니다.

Brandon: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting South Korea and someone asks you if you like Korean food. You want to answer that you like Kimchi. Respond to the question.

안녕하세요, 신디아 씨!


Appreciate your comment.

맞아요! 잘 쓰셨어요. PERFECT!

You like spicy food? 대단해요!


If the sentence ends in [-합니다] ending, you can turn it informal by changing that to [-해].

For example, informal tone of [좋아합니다.] is [좋아해].

[-이야] is used when the formal ending [-입니다] is spoken.

For example, [학생입니다] would be changed to [학생이야] in the informal situation.


Please let me know if you have any other questions! Thanks!


Best,

네. 맛있습니다. 특히 매운음식을 좋아합니다. (Yes, Korean food is delicious especially when it is spicy.) Is this sentence correct?


For the sentence to become informal, would removing "합니다" and replacing it with "이야" work?


고맙습니다.

Hi Nisha,


Thanks for your comment.

"불고기는 좋아합니다." In this sentence, "는" is used to make the contrast implying that I like "불고기" but not others.

A: 김치 좋아합니까?

B: 아니요.

A: 불고기 좋아합니까? (Here, A could also ask "불고기는 좋아합니까?")

B: 불고기는 좋아해요.


Hope this helps. :smile:

안녕하세요 !


네. 한국음식을 좋아해요! :smile:


Is the reason we don't use 는 instead of 를 because 는 means 'is'?


감사합니다 !
